Digimap – Online Mapping
EDINA commissioned the creation of a number of openly licensed class resources for schools and colleges for curricular areas with a focus on place.
The resources have been designed for use with the award-winning Digimap for Schools and it’s comparable FE-focused service Digimap for Colleges. Both services, provide easy access to a range of up to date Ordnance Survey digital mapping for Great Britain and build upon the established reputation EDINA has for delivering online mapping to the HE sector for 16 years via it’s flagship Digimap service. Users can access detailed maps showing building outlines, street level maps, road atlas style maps and maps for outdoor activities. In addition the Digimap for Schools service contains beautiful historical mapping and superbly detailed aerial photography.
